ZenTao is a management tool designed for Agile methodology, Scrum especially. You might be wondering whether you have to adopt Agile methodology if you want to use ZenTao . The answer is NO. You can do Waterfall using ZenTao and you will do it quite well. Considering that users might use different methodologies, we adopt more neutral concepts instead of concepts in Scrum.
